Sources for Soil Components                            May 2, 2013

If you need soil, Ewing’s on Lovejoy Rd has Turface and the Mobile club has flower rock.  The other material needed is pine bark that can be purchased at Lowe’s or Home Depot.  Look for pine bark as soil amendment, it is a finer grind.  

Members here in FWB have found that a good soil structure is achieved with 1 part flower rock, 1 part turface and 1 part pine bark (amendment).  Everyone has a different "recipe" for mixing bonsai soil but this seems to work for most of us.
